Lost and Found

Please encourage your children to check the lost and found for missing items. The items will be moved to the lobby this week, so please check for items that may belong to your children when you are at school for holiday activities. All unclaimed items will be donated to LICS on December 21. Thank you!

Creek Cares Tree

Thank you to all who purchased and wrapped gifts for the Creek Cares Tree. Your generosity is very much appreciated, and we were able to fulfill many wishes!

News from the Cafeteria

Due to the recall on lettuce, the cafeteria will not be serving chef salads until further notice. Most likely, we will not have salads until after the winter break. If your child eats the salads, please let them know this will not be a choice for a while.

Label those coats and jackets!

As temperatures are getting cooler, please take the time to write your child's name in his/her coat, jacket, sweatshirts in order to identify misplaced articles. Also, remind your child to check the lost and found if missing something. The lost and found is located at the end of Wellness Way, right past the cafeteria.

School doors open at 7:00.

Please do not drop off children and pull away before 7:00 am. Doors are unlocked at 7:00, and dropping them off earlier means that they are outside unsupervised. For the safety of your children, please wait until you see an adult open the school doors to let your children out of the car. Thank you for putting safety first!

Please have your child at school by 7:40. If not, please walk them inside to the office.

Please do not drop children off, watch them enter the doors, and pull off. This is not a safe practice, and we ask you for the safety of your children to please walk them inside.

Need to change your child's transportation - phone call or handwritten notes accepted.

Please make sure you communicate any transportation changes through a handwritten note or phone call to the front office at 821-4200 before 2pm. Do not communicate transportation changes via an email to the teacher. Your email may not be read before dismissal.
